Novels written about comic books possess a unique representational potential. Although many of these novels treat comics chiefly as sources of readymade metaphors, authors such as Rick Moody and Michael Chabon have expanded their figural lexicon. As serial narratives, comic books present novelists with a form of metonymic combination that can conflate or arrest time; as visual narratives, they offer the possibility of escaping conventional linguistic signification. The novels that translate these figurative strategies to prose use comics to challenge some of the most basic tenets of the linguistic turn of twentieth-century critical theory.
